The Sleep Medicine Center at Feather River Hospital is a
diagnostic and treatment laboratory for people with sleep apnea.
Those who suffer from sleep apnea suffer from involuntary
breathing pauses every hour.
Following a consultation, your doctor may refer you to the Sleep
Medicine Center for a sleep study, called a Polysomnography
Study. This study is conducted at the center in a comfortable,
home-like, bedroom. While you sleep, a specially trained
technician in the observation room monitors your breathing
patterns, muscle movement, blood oxygen level, heart rate, eye
movement, airflow and brain activity. Each bedroom has attached
shower and bathroom facilities so you can prepare for your normal
day. Poor sleep symptoms include:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue
- Loud snoring accompanied by periods of no breathing
- Falling asleep while driving or during other daytime
- Waking with a dry throat
- Morning headaches
- Irritability and mood changes
- Restless sleep
If you believe you might suffer from sleep apnea, consult your
family doctor for a sleep medicine consultation and ask for a
referral to the Sleep Medicine Center at Feather River Hospital.
